Charity Initiatives

Tuesday 30th May 2023

This half-term has seen the College community come together to support various initiatives and events which have raised a terrific £17,000 for several important causes.

The term kicked off with the Launch Day for the College’s ambitious bursary fundraising campaign, The Marlborough Difference, on Wednesday 19th April. Pupils, led by the Charity Committee and House teams, ran a jam-packed afternoon of activities in Court. The huge variety of stalls and challenges raised £7,087 which helped drive the total raised across the 36 hours to a record-breaking total.

To mark Mental Health Awareness Week, the Wellbeing Ambassadors organised a non-uniform/touch of green day on Friday 19th May (pictured above) to raise money for the Charlie Waller Trust. Pupils and staff donated £1 to take part and £700 was raised.

Congratulations to Art scholars, Tilly G and Daisy G, and to Daisy Krens (MM 2017-22) who donated paintings for exhibition and sale alongside professional artists to Highfield School for their bursary fund.

The annual C3 House Charity Day took place on Sunday 30th May with the C3 community coming together to raise £2,021 for The Brain Tumour Charity. The day included an entertaining concert in the Goodison Hall, a BBQ and inter-house football.

This half of term saw an amazing individual fundraising challenge undertaken by Elmhurst Housemistress, Harriet Cox, who ran the London Marathon and raised a tremendous £7,392 also for The Brain Tumour Charity in memory of her son, Bobby.

Good luck to Pete Wilkinson in our Security team, who will be abseiling 100m off the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth on Sunday 25th June to raise money for Lambourn Riding for the Disabled Association.
